Coco (Female Siamese) lost her lifelong partner (male Siamese) several months ago, and she is very lonely and very sad. She wails all the time if she’s not being held. However, we have a dog who she hates! This causes her to stay upstairs all the time alone. I go upstairs to visit her, but most of what I need to do is in the lower part of the house. There's a lot of history about why she hates the dog (it is due to anther dominant female cat that injured Coco and interrupted bonding between the puppy and her). She is very happy to spend time with any human and loves affection.
